Only number 9 ?
Wait and see what’s Number 1.
My completely unscientific chart goes foreign.
Technically, I think I can drive the 200 miles into Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey for a half, but if I stop near Wrexham for a comfort break I’m arrested and put to work in the Bass mirror factory at Mold. Risks.
GREAT scenery here, headed by the Matt le Tissier checkpoint on Snowdon,
but it was Conwy that blew me away last time.
And Llandudno is awesome, which is an anagram of Orme.
It took me 53 years to explore the Llyn peninsula, and find this classic outside gents at the pub on the beach.
But you want to see pubs. So here’s some corkers, from Beaumaris to Bangor to Caernarfon.
All 3 of those had excellent Bass on, perfect to wash down the hangover breakfast and give yourself another one.
OK, the locals are a little odd,
but it’s a small price to pay for gorgeous pub interiors
and a tremendous number of identical pale beers.
And they’re not ALL cowboys in Conwy.
And not ALL the small buildings are micropubs.
